In 1999, The Willett Hospital in Paris and the Brantford General Hospital became the first two partners in The Brant Community Healthcare System. With a total of 262 beds, the BCHS is an affiliated teaching site of McMaster University Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine. Brantford General Hospital is a regional acute health centre and the Willett site provides urgent care and ambulatory services.
John H. Stratford, with a prominent group of local citizens and twelve physicians opened the doors to the Hospital in 1885. Over the years, The Brantford General Hospital has developed into a busy, acute care hospital. Today, it is home to a dazzling array of leading edge technology complemented by more than 2100 caring health care professionals and volunteers.
The Brantford General Hospital, a 260+ bed, is this area's acute care facility, providing all of Brantford and Brant County's specialty programs and services for our 120,000+ residents and boasts stable, state-of-the-art programs within a team environment that ensures high level patient-focused care.
We are the regional centre for Paediatrics, Mental Health, Obstetrics, Gynaecology, CT Scanning, Critical Care, Surgical Services, Ambulatory Care and Emergency Medicine. We are also the site of the Brant Community Cancer Clinic and the S.C. Johnson Dialysis Clinic for patients throughout Brant County and Haldimand-Norfolk.
First built in 1922, the Willett has been a centre of health serving its local area. Over the years programs at the Willett have evolved to meet the healthcare needs of the wider community.
Today, there have been many advances in procedures, skills and technology that have influenced the way in which healthcare is provided. The average length of stay in a hospital has been drastically reduced and many procedures that would require being admitted to a hospital are now done on an outpatient basis. Studies have shown that today less than 1% of health care is provided in a hospital setting.
